History

UCCU Ransomware is a type of malware that first appeared in November 2019. It is believed to be a variant of the STOP (DJVU) Ransomware Family.

 

UCCU uses the .uccu file extension and will append this extension to encrypted files. For example, a file named “sample.jpg” would become “sample.jpg.uccu”.

 

This ransomware will also create a ransom note named “_readme.txt” or “README!!!.txt” in each folder that contains encrypted files. This ransom note contains instructions on how to decrypt your files and payment information. UCCU ransomware demands a ransom of $980, payable in Bitcoin (BTC).

 

It is important to note that UCCU Ransomware is a highly sophisticated form of malware. It is important to take preventative measures to avoid becoming infected with this type of ransomware.

Protection

There are a few things you can do to protect yourself from UCCU:

– Keep your operating system and software up to date with the latest security patches.

– Use a reputable anti-virus/anti-malware program and keep it up to date.

– Be cautious when opening email attachments, even if they appear to come from a trusted sender.

– Do not download or open files from untrustworthy websites.

– Back up your important files regularly and store them offline.

 

If you have already been infected with ransomware, there are a few things you can do:

  • Do not pay the ransom.
  • Use a reputable malware removal program to remove it from your computer.
  • Restore your files from a backup, if you have one.

 

So, why shouldn’t you pay the ransom?

Paying the ransom does not guarantee that you will get your files back.

In some cases, paying the ransom may make you a target for future attacks.

Paying the ransom puts you at risk of having your personal and financial information stolen.

Finally, by paying the ransom, you are supporting the criminals behind the ransomware.

 

To remove UCCU ransomware from your computer, you can use a reputable malware removal program such as Malwarebytes. This program is available for free and can be downloaded from the Malwarebytes website.

 

If you have a backup of your files, you can restore them from that. But, if you do not have a backup, you may be able to use data recovery software to recover some of your files.
